Elsa Peretti leaves behind a legacy as one of the greatest jewelry designers of all time. She has forever transformed the jewelry industry and will continue to eternally inspire the jewelry and fashion worlds. Whether it is her iconic bone cuff, diamonds by the yard, lacquer bangle, or bottle pendant, Elsa Peretti’s sculptural designs have a modern and timeless appeal that is distinctly unique to her individual aesthetic. Elsa Peretti was originally a model and designed perfume bottles for Halston before beginning to collaborate on her legendary collections with Tiffany. In this tribute to Elsa Peretti, we look back on some of her most memorable moments behind the camera, and at just a few of her greatest hits designed for Tiffany. Here’s to Elsa Peretti forever living on in our hearts and in our jewelry boxes.
